Straight Pull British workaround
« on: October 15, 2017, 09:03:31 PM »
See the attached video. A very ingenious way to get working ARs into the hands of British shooters where all centerfire semi- automatic firearms are banned.

 This might be a good option for shooters in New York, New Jersey, California, etc. but in reality a dead-end as the next time one of these firearms is used in a shooting the political weasels will make sure that these are banned as well.  I'm quite sure that in the UK now there are those that are plotting to take even this away from shooters there. But you do have to admire those beleaguered souls across the pond for not giving up

It looks pretty good...until they limit the magazine to 1 round.

They do not have a magazine limit in UK.  I guess with semi auto centerfire banned, not an issue
